What’s SaveCalifornia.com done for me lately?

Ask yourself — is the battle for moral values more inside or more outside the State Capitol in Sacramento?

With Democrat legislators committed to vote lock-step for immoral bills, the battle for issues moved outside the Capitol dome several years ago. For in a society where people vote and their votes are counted, our government is a mere reflection of what people understand, value, and worship. Right now, since the majority of Californians believe lies about a lot of things, we have a lie-based government.

This is why SaveCalifornia.com is dedicated to reaching and changing people’s hearts and minds up and down California. Using our big mouth to articulate God’s truth for families and our culture, and by pursuing innovation to be effective, we’re standing strong for moral virtues in the public square, for the common good.

Warning: More sexual indoctrination threatened

This week the government of Democrats elected by the foolish people of California gave committee approval to homosexual-bisexual-transsexual role models for children in public schools. If eventually signed by Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown, SB 48 would become the 7th statewide school sexual indoctrination law.

In the aftermath of the committee vote, I was privileged to reach many people with the truth about this severe attack on parents’ rights and children’s innocence.

No tax hike yet, and no systemic waste cut either

Thursday, March 17, 2011, 7:17 pm |

It’s been two straight days of voting in both houses of the California Legislature.

The good news is no tax hike has been approved or even come up for a vote, because no Republican legislator, so far, will agree to it.

The bad news is Democrats are NOT slashing systemic waste, but are cutting back government services. In other words, people get the shaft, but bureaucrats, union bosses, the bloated UC system stay fat and lazy. See all the structural waste that should be cut instead.

The most contentious item on the Senate and Assembly floors today was Jerry Brown’s proposal to redirect “lower-risk offenders” from state prisons to local jails and shift parole functions to local governments. Part of the bill allows county sheriffs to decide whether to incarcerate or release, depending on whether the jails were too full. This motivated some Republicans to alert families to get a gun to defend themselves against more criminals roaming free.

Keep urging Republican legislators to hold the line against placing more taxes on the ballot (more taxes on purchases, income, and cars, as well as a sharp reduction in child tax credit).   The Republicans have the power to withhold Republican votes, and that would deny Democrat legislators a 2/3rds majority to achieve their taxing goal.

When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, ‘just men who will rule in the fear of God.’ The preservation of [our] government depends on the faithful discharge of this Duty; if the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded. If [our] government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine Commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the Laws.
U.S. founding father Noah Webster, author of the first American dictionary (1758 – 1843)

Today is the day of the big tax-hike vote

Wednesday, March 16, 2011, 9:28 am |

Today is the day when California state legislators have scheduled a vote on continuing a heavy tax burden on you and your family. Even if you’ve already called, I’m asking you to call, fax, or email again so that your opposition rings in legislators’ ears as they prepare to vote. Your immediate action is needed.

What’s at stake? Jerry Brown and the Democrats want 5 more years of the sales tax hike, income tax hike, car tax hike, and the $210 reduction in the child tax credit. (These 2009 tax hikes were the largest of any state in U.S. history.)

This morning, SaveCalifornia.com delivered our letter strongly opposing placing taxes on the ballot to Republican legislators. If GOP assemblymembers and senators hold out, hold on, and say “no” to tax hikes on the ballot, they can defeat Jerry’s tax scheme. (The Democrat majority needs only 2 Republicans in each house to place these massive “tax extensions” on the ballot.)

Back up our efforts. Please call, fax, or email now to say “No more taxes!”
